Fate/stay night & Fate/Zero (Entire franchise) Discussion


Recommended Posts

You talking about this: http://myanimelist.net/anime/6922/Fate/stay_night:_Unlimited_Blade_Works ?

If so it says it aired Jan 23, 2010. It's also a movie. Movies usually take about 8 months to come to DVD... and fansub groups don't sub from Cam rips. Therefore subtitles for this movie, if any group picks it up.. wont come out till around late October, early November at the earliest.

The Fate/zero novel is part of the Fate/stay Night series that in much more detail tells the story of what happened during the Fourth War of the Holy Grail 10 years before the Fate/stay Night story starts. This deals with Shirō's foster father, Rin's father, and the younger Kotomine Kirei. The series is to be animated, but don't have info on if its to be a movie, OVA's, or series.

I have not read the novel, but have watched both the Fate/stay Night anime series and movie and am quite looking forward to it, just wanted to spread the joy.

War of the Holy Grail - Pursuing the power of the "Holy Grail" which grants a miracle, this is a contest in which seven magi summon seven Heroic Spirits to compete for it. In that battle whose conclusion was postponed three times, now, the fourth war commenced again. Entrusting their dearest wish of victory, the magi joined the battleground called "Fuyuki", but amongst them, there was a man who was always alone, and could not find out the meaning behind his fights. His name was Kotomine Kirei. Not comprehending the guidance of fate, Kirei was lost, and had kept questioning. Why someone like his was given the Command Seals. However, the fate of his fights crossed Kirei's path with a nemesis by chance. That person is - Emiya Kiritsugu. A man who was sterner than anyone else, more merciless than anyone else, and who sought the miracle of the Holy Grail.

Merely recited in fragments in Fate/Stay Night, this is the Fourth War of the Holy Grail 10 years ago. The truth which unfolded behind the battle between Shirou's foster father, Rin's father, and the younger Kotomine Kirei, is finally revealed...

The first episode was so long and full of relatively boring background material that I have only now started to view the later episodes - it does get better, but seems to move much more slowly than Fate/Stay night. Considering how long it took to get Fate/Zero going (and how long I waited for it to come out!) I am a bit disappointed. Guess I am more oriented to action from the start!

I think that its actually a prequel. And its supposed to be even better than fate/stay night too.

You are correct this happened 10 years before the story of Fate/stay Night.


I really don't think you know good pacing when you see it. So far I have absolutely nothing to complain about. I mean there are always little nitpicks on a show, but even that is a very short list for me. If they didn't do what they did in the first episode no one would be able to make sense of anything at all. This show has a lot of fighting in it and some great fighting at that, but that's not what this show is about, it's about the story lines of the characters and how everything is intertwined in some way you wouldn't expect. That's what makes this show great. And do remember this is based off a RPG storyline game not a strict fighting game. Though it came out in novel form it was written to be a game, like Fate/stay Night.
